"We Must Have Order!" is Volume Five of the Taped Rugs "Uncooked" series of CD releases. All pieces on this CD were recorded by Charles Rice Goff III alone and alive in the Taped Rugs studio in Lawrence, Kansas, USA. They are presented in their original forms without the addition of effects nor overdubbed materials.
"We Must Have Order!" is the spawn of a particularly disturbing encounter with a local artocrat whose dismissive attitude put Goff into a rather inspired mood. Unlike the previous volumes of the Uncooked series, this one was recorded through a stereo microphone rather than through direct line inputs. A Vox Pathfinder amplifier served up the sounds, and its sixty cycle hums can be heard in this recording along with Goff kicking foot pedals, pressing buttons and twiddling knobs, giving this two CD set all the charm of a lofi audience bootleg. The two CD set constitutes the entire session, recorded March 7th, 2008.
Goff plays Reflector Stratocaster, Micromoog, a variety of guitar preparations, a variety of sound effects, and two hand held cassette recorders. Goff also incorporates a few themes from the old Taped Rugs catalog into the session as is described here:
Improvisation/It Doesn't Matter (1981)/The Aquarium (1980)
